My name is Kaitlyn Brandsema. I am a first grade teacher at Southwest Elementary and I have been teaching for five years. I was born in New Jersey but moved to High Point while in elementary school where I attended Southwest from grades 1-12. I am so lucky to be able to teach at the same school that I attended! I have an older sister, a younger brother, and an adorable nephew! I love the beach, reading,crafting, and spending time with family and friends.
I attended East Carolina University for my undergraduate degree (Go Pirates!) and High Point University to earn my Master's Degree in Education. I am looking forward to teaching first grade! It is going to be a great year!
